X-Men Spin-Off Series Legion Casts Fargo Star Rachel Keller


FX has Fargo season two actress Rachel Keller in the main female role in its new X-Men spin-off series, Legion, which just happens to the new show from Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley.

Legion is based on the Marvel comics character David Haller, who suffers from multiple personality disorder, with each of his different personalities having a different power. In the comics he’s the son of Charles Xavier and Israeli Holocaust survivor Gabrielle Haller but the producers of the show have said that crossovers are unlikely and that little, if anything, will be made of Haller’s heritage in the series.

Keller will play the as-yet unnamed female lead, described as a scrappy and optimistic woman in her 20s. The Hollywood Reporter hints that she has powers and mentions rumours that she may be an incarnation of Rogue and Spyke (which seems unlikely to us but you never know).

Hawley will write the pilot and serve as an executive producer alongside Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine), Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Superman Returns), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Martian) and Marvel Television topper Jeph Loeb (Agents of SHIELD, Daredevil) and Jim Chory (Daredevil).
